ANTHRAX Recording Song For ‘Game Of Thrones’!

anthraxstudio2014game_638ANTHRAX is reportedly recording a song for an upcoming “Game Of Thrones” mixtape from HBO.

Released earlier this year via Launch Point Records, “Catch The Throne: The Mixtape” included new tracks from hip-hop artists Big Boi, Common, Wale, Kilo Kish and others, and borrowed themes and storylines from the first three seasons. Each cut on the record sampled music from the original “Game of Thrones” soundtrack.

ANTHRAX, along with producer Jay Ruston, is currently in a Los Angeles studio recording the follow-up to the band’s 2011 Grammy-nominated, critically-acclaimed album “Worship Music”. The group — Charlie Benante (drums), Frank Bello (bass), Joey Belladonna (vocals), Scott Ian (guitar) and Jon Donais (guitar) — has been writing and demoing new songs over the past few months and plans to record well into January. The band’s as-yet-untitled eleventh full-length effort is set for a 2015 release via Megaforce.
Charlie Benante stated about the progress of the songwriting sessions for ANTHRAX’s next studio album: “Some of the new music that’s been coming out for us has been so inspiring. It’s, like, I remember telling Scott, we had about 12 songs, and I told him, I said, ‘Dude, now the good stuff’s coming out of me.’ And he’s, like, ‘Really? But these 12 are awesome.’ I said, ‘Nah, dude. Wait until you hear the next batch.” Benante added: “For this new album, I’ve been lucky enough to draw from the ‘Worship Music’ experience and really build on that. So these newer tunes are just… Man, if that record was, like… How can I put this? If that was like ‘Led Zeppelin IV’, then this one is definitely gonna be like ‘Physical Graffiti’. The reason why I said that is because have such an abundance of songs. ‘Physical Graffiti’ was a double record. We have enough material to have a double record at this point too.”
